I don't know why Granholm doesn't just end this. She already sucks and is facing term limits, but this move might be one thing people would actually appreciate.
 
2008-08-19 10:11:53 AM
Why, at this point, doesn't he simply resign?

Does he enjoy being a national joke?

September 3rd. If she has any kind of smarts, she'll remove him from office.

He won't resign without a plea deal. It's the only leverage he has to stay out of jail. I'm sure they'll be working on a plea bargain until September 3rd. If he can't agree by then...he's farked....because he'll be facing being removed from office and later convicted.

That's because the judge is a Kwamunist...

Because he knows he's not guilty. It's just the man tryin to keep a brutha down.

I think it's actually pretty fitting that the current mayor of Detroit is in jail, seeing as that's where the majority of his constituency lives.

The educated and responsible citixenry of Detroit RE-elected Kwame. They deserve every bad thing that happens to them.

That's racist
 
2008-08-19 01:37:17 PM
Good for the judge.


Bit of a drag for Detroit though. Is he still Mayor until the next election? Or is there impeachment afoot?

Sadly, Thug Mayor can haz rights too. It's not about him being black, because there are plenty of folks (black and white) who could his job better.

I don't think that's going to be a problem. Even most Detroit residents seem to think he should just go already.

The situation in Detroit saddens me every time something new shows up on the main page.

But, as panzerfaustob said, the people of the city re-elected the guy. Was the case of the police officers already in court at that time?
 
2008-08-19 01:42:34 PM
Well, this is who these people are. Constantly full of lies and corruption.

/And by "these people" I mean Democrats :)

Shiat, that's nothing compared to McCain getting all huggy with Bush.

A "FAIL" tag should go to the council for not knowing the limits of their power or consulting the City Attorney before considering this action.

I wonder how much thought the morans give other issues?
 
2008-08-19 01:46:52 PM
If this was a white mayor, he'd be gone in a minute. Since he's black, there is this extra bit of caution being use. This is because everyone's afraid he'll pull out his race card! And I'm sure Kwame has lots of race cards he will play!!!
 
2008-08-19 01:48:21 PM
I miss the days when you could just carry your leaders to the edge of town and throw them out. Why a judge has the power to say "NO!" when the people attempt to do so, I do not know.

He's already played the whole deck and nothing left but jokers...seriously, there's been years of "caution" with this idiot for what?

jayg22: Good thing a video like this dosnt exist for the Obama campaign:

Are you surprised that Obama endorsed this guy. The guy is black. Obama is all about race. He is a one race politician who by his own admission has learned to "play the game" around whites. In this case this racist black supremest has half the country fooled. The one difference between Jesse Jackson and Obama is that Jesse wears his racism proudly ... openly. Obama "plays the game" ... he smiles and is soft spoken ... and people say "hey a young black man who is not always angry" (his own words) and you guys fall for it.

He did use the N-word in reference to what he says that he has been called during his state of the city address this year. But I'm sure that there's no race baiting behind that one.

Quite frankly, I still think that the Detroit City Council are the ones that are the most corrupt entity in Detroit. They are also the ones responsible for a lot of this circus around the mayor. Now, I am not absolving Kilpatrick from any wrongdoing, but I do strongly feel that these council-people are part of the root of the corruption problem in Detroit.

The only time blacks seem to want white people around is when they're buying a home in a new neighborhood.

While I am not a strong Kwame supporter, I think it is pretty outrageous that the youngest BLACK mayor of a major city in history, is being singled out and persecuted. Far worse goes on in other cities - in Chicago, the Daleys run the city like a mafia crime family, in New York, Bloomberg sexually harasses whoever he wants and funnels city business to his friends, etc etc. Guess what? The other two guys are white. They also aren't being tried for anything. Hmmm...

Chicago and New York aren't bombed out shells of their former selves, either. If Detroit were in any way, shape or form a decent, civilized place it wouldn't be as big of an issue. The fact of the matter is that a once fine city is now a complete hunk of shiat because of worthless deadbeat scum like this guy who'd rather line their own pockets than do anything worthwhile.

Ask any Chicagoan and they will all tell you the same thing

"Sure, the Mayor is a crook... but hey the roads are paved and the trash is picked up, crime is down, and they tore down the green"

Most of the players in this saga are, in fact, black. The mayor, the prosecutor, most of the city council, some of the judges, most of the city residents. This is not white against black. Don't paint it as such.
